Internal Wall Insulation, better known as Dry Lining is the term used for a common method of constructing internal walls and ceilings using panels made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper, then kiln dried. Many such panels are made with fiberglass instead of paper to prevent mold growth, which is common with paper that has been exposed to water due to plumbing leaks or floods.
Drywall construction is used globally for the finish construction of interior walls and ceilings. In the case of our interior wall insulation services, we would by applying the plasterboard to an existing wall and the new insulation would be placed beneath that.
With Government Internal Wall Insulation Grants available through the SEI (Up to €2500 for Internal Wall Dry Lining), now has never been a better time to upgrade your home insulation.
If your home is built using solid wall or hollow block construction methods, cavity fill insulation is not an option. Internal insulation (sometimes referred to as ‘dry- lining’) involves fixing insulation to the inner surfaces of your external walls. This usually involves fixing an insulation board to the walls and covering it with a vapour barrier layer and plasterboard. One of the main disadvantages of internal insulation is the loss of room space; this may be minimised by using high performance insulation products that are thinner. While this is often a more affordable option than installing external wall insulation, the loss of space and potential necessity to take out and re-fit fitted kitchens and appliances can result in people choosing the external insulation option.
